I really don't get this, another striker how many is he going to play? Last game Hogan didn't score but he didn't get the service either, he has proved that given a service he'll score. And we have Davis even uncle Albert has played up front when needed and we are still paying Flabby and Mc Melbourne to do nothing.
What a farce.
I’m not a big fan of loan players - but realistically we only have Hogan and Davis available at the moment (I don’t count flabby). Grabban may be a shrewd short term signing until Kodjia is fit. He can score goals and be a good experienced back up to Hogan and take a bit of pressure off Davis as our 2nd goal scorer.
He's never really hit the heights. Seems to move on a lot. If he's just there as a precaution in case Hogan and Davis get crocked then maybe it makes sense, but .... we already have a £12m striker kicking his heels. Think I'd sooner see McCormack re-integrated.
Looks like Bruce will do almost anything not to have to bring back McCormack.
